More than 10,000 jobs await OFWs in various countries.

Thousands of Jobs Await Filipinos Abroad

Recently, the Philippine government has ordered a ban on the deployment of OFWs to Kuwait, due to cases of violence against domestic workers there. On the other hand, they are encouraging Filipinos to apply for work in other countries.

According to the latest POEA postings, licensed recruitment agencies are seeking to fill the following job orders:

  • UAE — more than 1,400 vacancies for accountants, cleaners, foremen, mechanical engineers, nurses, sales staff, secretaries, waiters, and waitresses
  • Saudi Arabia — more than 7,000 job openings for carpenters, cleaners, drivers, electricians, engineer, nurses, plumbers, and sales personnel
  • Hong Kong — at least 2,400 domestic helpers
  • United Kingdom — around 200 nurses

In addition, job opportunities for caregivers and food service supervisors are up for grabs in Canada as well.

The figures are based on the latest job postings by POEA.

Warning Against Fake Documents
Meanwhile, applicants are cautioned against using fake documents when applying for jobs. Last month, POEA administrator Bernard Olalia announced that those who will be found guilty of submitting false documents will face disciplinary action. This includes temporary suspension or even permanent disqualification from overseas employment programs.

The advisory on fake documents was released following reports that some Filipino nurses in Saudi Arabia submitted false information on their certificates of employment.

Be sure to present true information and authentic documents.

Indeed, to avoid any problems with your job application, be sure to present only true information and authentic documents. Likewise, be sure to apply through legal recruitment agencies.
